build: Automated VPP build
VSPERF makefiles were updated to automatically download and compile VPP. VPP will not be installed into the OS, but it will be executed from VSPERF's src subdirectory. Thus underlying OS is not affected by VPP build required by VSPERF. It also allows quick switch among different versions of various tools used by VSPERF. As part of this patch, VERIFY and MERGE CI jobs were updated to build VPP and test it with basic set of integration tests.
